FCPS Postpones Winter Sports Until January

Fauquier County Public Schools (FCPS) announced they are postponing winter sports until Jan. 6, less than a week before the anticipated start date for the winter seasons. Out-of-season conditioning will also be delayed until Jan. 6.
According to activities director Mark Ott, the decision was made “based on the increasing number of COVID cases in our county.”
This decision was made up by the local school board division who have “total authority if they choose to participate, delay, or not participate” in this school year’s championship schedule, according to Mike McCall, Virginia High School League (VHSL) Director of Communications. He said that the VHSL had no role in the decision.
